Friday February 3 Up early because breakfast starts at 7. The young people here have worship in the chapel at 5:30. But we thought getting there for breakfast at 7 am was early enough, especially since so many of us are fighting sickness already. After a delicious breakfast, we joined the dental clinic and traveled to a village about 20 minutes away. We had our first taste of "off roading." Once everyone got here, we helped set up in a building behind the elementary school
Thursday February 2 We slept in some and went to the restaurant next door for breakfast at 10 am. We tried dried orange treats that most of us decided tasted mostly like orange peel, though a bit less sour and bitter. Most of us didn’t like them. Natalie and Chris doing laundry at Dreher’s house. James editing. Girls resting. They are very tired from the last few long days. Fighting sore throats. Sarah and Luke doing some school and playing games. Jon and Natalie working.
Wednesday February 1 Up at 5:30am to get the kids ready to go to the refugee camp. LeRoy had permission for only 3 gulowah (foreigners) to go into the refugee camp, so it was James, Lilyann, and Mary Ann. Memewah was to drive one bike as guide and James the other. Memewah is 13, and a newer driver, so we have extra reason to pray. We threw together a breakfast of PBJ sandwiches and leftovers, forcing them to eat. "It's too early to eat," their bodies were telling them.
